125 E. Court Square, Decatur. 404-687-0990. www.brickstorepub.com. Atlanta is lucky to enjoy many great local beers and restaurants featuring a wide variety of brews. But nothing compares to the amazing experience at the BRICK STORE PUB in Decatur. The atmosphere of the pub, its large selection of beer from all over the world, and the thorough knowledge of all the employees make the Brick Store stand out. Filled with the smell of delicious beer, the pub is welcoming to everyone, from the connoisseur to the novice. Nowhere else can one enjoy as many Belgian varieties. Whether it's a local beer from Georgia, a microbrew from Colorado, or a traditional Belgian or German ale, the staff is always willing to help people choose something that fits their taste. But be warned: The selection is limited to what many (including this writer) consider to be higher-quality beer, so no Bud, Miller or Coors. less...

Yes, it carries an up-to-the-minute mix of hip and stylish casual clothing for men and women - including plenty of unique work from local designers - and boasts a cool, friendly staff. But 1-FIVE-0 covers more territory than the typical trendy shop. It also offers candy, gotta-have novelty items, accessories and, most notably, hosts live-music nights every month that serve as a mingling spot for the in-the-know. It even makes a good venue for a decent cheap date. 1000 Marietta St. 404-474-4102. www.150atlanta.com. less...

Best hip-hop act BOA Award Winner

Lee Harvey Oswald
LEE HARVEY OSWALD is a ski-mask-wearing, blazer-sporting hip-hop act with two DJs who mix it up on the tables while MCs take turns at the microphone, letting loose funky verses.

LEE HARVEY OSWALD is a ski-mask-wearing, blazer-sporting hip-hop act with two DJs who mix it up on the tables while MCs take turns at the microphone, letting loose funky verses. Top it off with a pair of busty, wriggling lady dancers and you've got yourself one salacious show. The members, the lyrics, the beats - they all deliver a hard, almost tangible punch right in the middle of your chest. Imagine the Beastie Boys, circa 1984, with a little more street cred. Mix old-school energy with turntablism and eye candy, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is where it's at. www.myspace.com/misterleeharvey. less...

In the quest for a perfect breakfast, the question is always sweet or savory. WEST EGG ingeniously solves this problem by serving cinnamon butter alongside its impossibly rich and fluffy biscuits, so you can have your eggs and bacon and your dose of sweet relief as well. Or you could go for the hearty and comforting Irish oatmeal, topped with a fresh fruit compote. The breakfast sandwiches also hit the spot, and the friendly atmosphere and good coffee make this the most solid all-around morning – or afternoon (breakfast is served all day for you lazy britches) – spot in town. less...
